I didn't realise this weekend was a bank holiday, until everyone else had put in there request as to what they wanted to do with me- as either the chief ' Cook, Bottle washer, driver, Banker and dogsbody'!!! In between helping one child name his undies yesterday, well he's going on a school trip on Wednesday and if the list says 6 sets of underwear and that the clothing should be named- he won't be happy until it is done!!! And then driving Heather in the Horsebox, following her on a bike and falling off, trying to get on the bike, in the middle of the rode, by the time I had landed home after a tea with my mum & dad and then a call in at my Grans, posting a blog update had gone out the window.If only everything was plain sailing!!!!
Anyway in the middle of everything else yesterday, I did fit in some time to photograph some projects I had finished off, featuring a new stamp set from the 'Summer Mini' called 'The Open Sea'. This is a very different style of stamp set to the rest. that is on offer in the mini, and perfect for those that love the altered/ distressed look for their craft projects.
The set contains 5 stamps and is available as wood mounted (123030 £23.95)
or cling (123032 £18.95).
For the small card I used the 'Compass' stamp and some punches to make a little embellishment.
The inside of the card was decorated with a little simple on colour stamping.
The large card, was created by folding an A4 sheet of 'Basic Grey' in half, and the decorative panel was cut from a 'One Sheet Wonder', that used all the stamps apart from the 'Ship'.
The stamped the 'Ship' in 'Basic Grey' on to a scrap of 'Very Vanilla' and then cut it out using my 2nd smallest 'Framelit'- I am so in love with these xx
I decorated another panel of 'Very Vanilla' around the edge, using the stamps and ink to add interest to the inside of the card too!
With the left over piece of 'One Sheet Wonder' I made a little 'Cheese Box- Gift Box!'
I created a little video, just to show how easy these are to create with the new 'Simply Scored' !!
Heather helped me film this yesterday, and wasn't very pleased I had let you all in on what she calls the boxes, if I had videoed her- you will have seen her go bright red and start muttering that she hadn't called them that for ages!!
